Helping Restore Ability
ASC is pleased to announce the selection of its 2014-2015 beneficiary Helping Restore Ability, a 501c3 organization that offers independence, freedom, and dignity to low-income children, adults, and families who live with a disabling condition. By providing daily living services in their homes, Helping Restore Ability endeavors to keep families together in their home and out of institutional care so that they may live life to the fullest. Last year alone, Helping Restore Ability provided almost 1.5 million hours of service on only 3% administrative costs.
Children make up nearly 40% of those served by Helping Restore Ability. Those with a disabling condition run a broad range, from infants with a congenital disease, to toddlers diagnosed with autism, to teenagers now using a wheelchair after an accident. The work conducted at Helping Restore Ability aims ultimately to offer independence, freedom, and dignity to those children, adults and families who live with a disabling condition. They help care for children like Carrington, who was adopted from Ukraine with significant special needs and spent five weeks in the hospital upon her arrival in Texas for treatment of severe malnutrition as well as Marcus, a former track athlete who suffered severe spinal trauma in a car wreck heading back to college. It does not matter a person’s disabling condition – physical, developmental, or intellectual, Helping Restore Ability serves every person and any disabling condition.
